OTHER NOTES
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses was the final single from the Achtung Baby album. The song was reworked extensively from the version found on the album and two versions were released, the full length version and an edit of that remix. The song itself did not have a strong live career, and was not played during every concert of the Zoo TV tour, and was not played whole again after that point.

This single included a couple of cover songs as b-sides much the same as the final single from Rattle and Hum had. The second single included a remix of Salome, originally found on the Even Better Than the Real Thing single, and a remix of Can't Help Falling in Love, originally recorded for the Honeymoon in Vegas soundtrack.

The single cover for Who's Going to Ride your Wild Horses fits together with the single covers for The Fly, Mysterious Ways and Even Better than the Real Thing to make one large image.
